If that is LMS 5313, then I have a photo of her in 1938 when my grandad Leslie Stokes was a railwayman!! Sad to find out that she was smashed and scrapped though...

My dad Norman Taylor was a driver out of Springs Branch in the late 1940s and died when I was 5. Anybody know him?

Built by Armstrong-Whitworth in February 1937 for the LMS and was withdrawn in February 1965 obviously due to accident damage and was soon cut up at Central Wagon in Ince a month later.
